    Most extended warranties are way overpriced, and rarely cover the items that fail (too many exclusions). You'd be better off putting the same money in a savings account. If you never need to use it, it's still yours.

    Yeah i don't know that I would get one, but I would definitely ask about it. BTW, when I ordered mine, there was a sign on the wall that said "Buy here and get free tires for life..." I will DEFINITELY check that out... lol

    My extended warranty wasn't that much and covers everything the 3 year 35,000. It is from Chrysler and is 7 year 75,000. It was under $2,000. I'm thinking if anything goes wrong it is gonna cost that much to repair. I think it depends on the warranty and who is offering it.

    If it's that much I probably just go with standard warranty and pay out of pocket later versus having the cost compounded into the interest. :confused:

    Believe me, Im going to put money into the car, I will just have to keep it on the DL ( down low ).. I want to do something with the wheels, and wait for someone to bring a tune to market.
